Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, therefore the actual old Europe policy is, to posture somewhat for Georgia in the hope this will be enough to please eastern Europe without pissing off the Russia too much and keeping institutions like NATO alive,  but responding very halfheartedly to troop demands from NATO.

So given your comment is right, the policy done by current old Europe's leaders maybe even the best we can get at all, and all the talk about dividing more agressive from the US is not doable in the real world..., because a functioning EU would be priority #1 on my list.
